Re: 2020 Installment of MLB Bitchin' & Moanin'
No doubt it's the most frustrating game out there.  But, you can shoot 102 and still think about the 3 shots in that round where you put it on the green in regulation or made that long putt.  Keeps you coming back. 

I also have a really good pre-round ritual you can use if there's a lot of water on the course.  It involves 3 candles, some baby oil and a sliver of cow dung.  A little messy but guarantees you won't sacrifice more than one sleeve of balls to the water Gods per round.  Very effective.

I've actually had balls jump out of my bag (Softball toss here) and jump in the water voluntarily on the way to the course.

Bump on the biesbolz.  Theo Epstein steps down from the Cubs' President of Baseball Operations.  Good Buzz or Bad Buzz?

Expected.  Not sure yet whether it's good or bad.  He came in and did what he promised...delivering a WS ring.  Seems like the last few years were just pretty stagnant, even pre-COVID.  I think it may be a good time for a different direction.

Mets fans are pretty sure they will nab him....along with Ozuna, Bauer, Judge, Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, Joe Montanya and Pedro Serrano before March. Im almost dead serious.

Ruth has been on IR for some time now.  Not sure if he'll ever be 100%.

Wait, I thought this guy is dead but didn't hang himself?  If he's dead, how in the hell is going to step down from anything?

He stepped down off the chair with a noose around his neck.

Re: 2020 Installment of MLB Bitchin' & Moanin'
Too early to start a 2021 MLB B&M thread, unless it isn't.  But I have a question for the Buzzer.  With the unloading of Darvish to the Fathers, is the skuttlebutt true about the Baby Bears tearing it down Braves and Astros style? Truthfully, they have become a bit stagnant the last couple of years, but are they at the point of sell, sell, sell?  I hope not because that was a sick feeling for a couple of years with the only drama being the over/under on 100 losses.  Intel?

Looks like the Padres have gotten serious about the Series with the addition of Darvish and LHP Blake Snell from the Rays. Plus, they developed a real hate/hate relationship with the Dodgers last year, which could be interesting for 21'.

On the Braves front....a whole lotta' MEH!!!!  They added Charlie Morton.  Yaaaawwwwnnn.

Re: 2020 Installment of MLB Bitchin' & Moanin'
It sure looks that way.  Word on the Bleachernation skreet is that they are still looking to unload Contreras as well.  That would leave them with a player/coach situation at catcher...

I feel a lot of bitching and maybe a little extra moaning in my 2021 future.  They may be really good by 2025...

So there's that. 

Honestly would hate to see a sell off.  I have no idea what their payroll is and maybe that's the problem.  If you're not the Dodgers or Yankees, it's been a good recipe for future success given what Cleveland, The ATL and Astros have been doing in recent years.  And even a huge market/payroll team like Boston burned it all down last year.

If you have great prospects in your system and are getting some low priced, young talent in these trades, you can rebound pretty quickly.
